Professional Summary

As a senior vice president with Colliers International, I specialize in the exclusive representation of buyers and sellers of hospitality investment properties throughout the Western United States in partnership with Jon Grantham, vice president; and Mike Montoya, senior associate. Our team provides extensive advisory services and representation to clients in the disposition, management and acquisition of hospitality-related assets. We also advise companies and owners pursuing the monetization of real estate holdings through hospitality asset financing.

With comprehensive experience in hotel operations and a successful track record of investment sales, I understand the unique challenges and opportunities of hotel real estate. I am adept at guiding owners and investors in developing short- and long-term acquisition and disposition strategies and in preparing for financing or portfolio restructuring.

Known for our in-depth understanding of the hospitality market and innate knowledge of hotel operations, we leverage our operational and ownership experience to create significant value and upside for clients. Colliers provides one of the most prolific international platforms within the industry for foreign capital investment sales, enabling us to maximize exposure for our clients and provide a proven conduit to foreign capital.

I work closely with Colliers International’s Hotels Group, which provides significant local, regional, national and international market knowledge and expertise needed to produce world-class marketing campaigns.

With more than 25 years of experience in the real estate industry, I bring a thorough knowledge of trends and conditions that impact the hotel and hospitality investment market. Prior to joining Colliers, I was a hotel industry specialist and member of the national Hospitality Group with Marcus & Millichap. Previously, I was a managing partner at M&M Associates, LLC, specializing in hotel real estate investment and management services.

My extensive operational background includes general manager positions at Best Western, Clarion Hotel by Choice Hotels, Comfort Inn by Choice Hotels, Ramada Hotels by Wyndham, Red Lions Hotel by Hilton, Holiday Inn Suites by IHG, Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott, and select high-end boutique hotels in the Scottsdale and Phoenix area. As general manager, I oversaw and was responsible for all areas of the hotel operations.
